CSIRO Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory Sundowner

December 14, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

So you’ve heard about the SKA and the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory, you know it’s got something to do with radios, space and astronomy and it’s a seriously big deal for the region.

But how much do you really know about this project?

Join CSIRO and Scinapse for a sundowner that will fill you in on what it’s all about and why it’s poised to become a world-renowned site.

You’ll learn about the equipment that’s already there and what’s planned for the future, and how it will help us to reveal the structure of the early Universe, chart the evolution of galaxies, and decode flickering sources of radio waves in our Galaxy and beyond. All this with the world’s fastest radio telescopes and most challenging Big Data projects, powered by cutting-edge green energy!

In addition, you’ll hear from our own network of science lovers, Scinapse, and find out how you can be involved.

Drinks and nibbles provided.
